Backstreet Boys member Howie Dorough and his wife Leigh have just announced the birth of their second son, Holden John.

According to People, Dorough gave birth on Saturday, Feb. 16. The musician told People, “My beautiful wife Leigh and I are so proud to welcome our son to the world.”

He continued, “Holden surprised us by arriving three days ahead of schedule at 6:37 a.m., [weighing in] at 6 lbs., 15 oz. and 20 inches long. Holden is healthy and we couldn’t be happier.”

The couple married in December of 2007, and welcomed their first child together, James Hoke, in 2009.

Perez Hilton reports Dorough and the family are extremely excited to have a new member of their family saying, “Leigh is such an incredible woman and mother, and our son excited to have a baby brother. I feel so lucky to have such an amazing family.”

Fellow band member Aj Mclean and wife Rochelle welcomed his first child, daughter Ava, this past November.

The band is about to hit their 20th anniversary (April 20, 2013), and is celebrating by releasing a new album and a world tour in May 2013.
